Fierce and gentle at once, like standing upon the edge of a knife: Junebug Company is proud to present its newest work, WICCA. Rosanne Briens, Erin O'Reilly and Sophie Ammann weave together a celebration of Womanhood and the power

of Gentleness - sacred, sensual, vulnerable... strong.

With an original score by Chris Lynch, their trio answers the call of the Wild Woman: entirely devoted, yet still able to bite back when necessary.

Sauvages et tendres sont celles qui tiennent en équilibre sur la fine lame de la douceur.

Avec WICCA, Rosanne Briens, Erin O’Reilly et Sophie Ammann tissent une pièce rituel qui célèbre le féminin sacré, sensuel, vulnérable… Fort.

Sur une musique originale de Chris Lynch, leur trio répond à l’appel de la Femme Sauvage, qui revendique le pouvoir, humble mais non moins puissant, de la douceur. Dévouées, certes, mais aussi capables de mordre lorsqu’il le faut.

BUDGE 3 AT FRINGE FESTIVAL
EDINBURGH

Junebug Company performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival as part of the BudGE! collective, in the triple bill Budge3. Check out the teaser!

Performed from the 7th to the 15th of August 2015 at Greenside Venues (Royal Terrace).

★★★★ 'Budge3 is an accomplished work by an audacious collective that transitions from petite manifestations of love to joyous exclamations of carefree - if qualified - abandon, with perceptible intelligence. Come back to Edinburgh, pronto.'

Oliver Newson, Broadway Baby

 

'Junebug Company showed (...) enterprisingly cliche-free movement vocabulary in response to music where meetings and partings have a country-rock feel. The checked shirts were the only "yee-hah!" nod here.'

Mary Brennan, The Herald (Glasgow, UK)
